We engaged state-of-the art objective evaluation techniques that assist us in classifying underlying conditions and applying appropriate treatment interventions.
Our practice supports early evaluation for memory impairment diagnosis through scientifically supported and FDA approved methods. These include the Evoke Potential Assessment of brain health as well as blood tests that are directed at the evaluation of possible organ system factors that can impair optimal brain function. Also, blood tests include a comprehensive panel of genetic testing.
Our treatment approach involves lifestyle changes, nutritional recommendations, micronutrient supplements, and FDA approved medication to retard memory loss progression. An individual comprehensive care plan is generated and integrated into our care plan. Also, we offer brain exercises and biofeedback techniques.
